Our Great Place to Learn

The "Golden Threads" of our curriculum have been developed based on the educational needs of the children we teach at Cottons Farm.

Our curriculum builds on extensive research into what works in teaching and learning.  Some of the research our curriculum is built upon includes

-The Curriculum by Mary Myatt

-Building Communities of Engaged Readers by Teresa Cremin

-Reading Rediscovered by Doug Lemov et al

-Bringing Words to Life by Isabel Beck

-Closing the Vocabulary Gap by Alex Quigley

-Glow Maths Hub action research headed by Steve Lomax

-EEF Guidance reports including

-Metacognition & Self-Regulation

-KS2 Maths

-3 reports (EYFS, KS1 and KS2) on Literacy

Each subject has been carefully thought through to ensure content is structured appropriately and that attention is paid to pupils remembering what they have learnt.

Our general approach to the curriculum is outlined in the document below titled "The Curriculum Overview".
